Paula Edgar ’95: Metropolitan Black Bar Association President

Margaret Temesvari – November 10, 2016

Congratulations to Paula Edgar ’95 who was recently installed as president of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association! In an article in theĀ  “Brooklyn Daily Eagle” on November 9, Paula “talked about her mother and how her death during 9/11 not only led her to go to law school, but also had a profound effect on how she plansĀ  on running the specialty bar during her two-year term. The lesson she took way from the entire tragic event was simple: life is short and it’s important to have an impact in that short time.” That’s exactly how Paula plans to utilize her term as president. She refers to her plan as “Four-P” – professional development, pipeline, partnership, and presence.
